Black ignorance and enlightenment: two different worlds
By: Greg Halvorson
Oy-yoy-yoy, itâ€™s an odd time we live in.Â Electing a community organizer to lead the Free World has resulted in what happens when you elect a community organizer to lead the Free World.Â And yet swaths of the country donâ€™t seem to mind.Â African Americans, especially, act as if all is well.
But all is not well!
That men hurt by laws support the law-makers lacks sense; and a ninety-percent approval rating for the president is bizarre.Â Unemployment among inner-city youth is triple the national average, black educators graduate quasi-literates, and often the drop-out party outnumbers commencement.
You canâ€™t get 90% of Nascar fans to like speed.Â How do they miss that Barack doesnâ€™t care?Â Yes, heâ€™s a black man – in the words of Joe Biden, a â€œclean and articulateâ€ one – but his fidelity is to union thugs and white lawyers.Â To them, blacks are â€œgimmes.â€Â And the truth of the matter is that despite evidence that progressives use them, blacks turn a blind eye.
Enter the Calvary.Â Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, and Walter Williams understand that justice is not â€œsocial,â€ that hand-ups beat hand-outs, and that the U.S. Constitution doesnâ€™t â€œlive and breathe.â€Â These iconic blacks, along with Allen West, Herman Cain, and Star Parker, speak truth.Â Theyâ€™ve â€œleft the plantation.â€
But what about â€œrealâ€ blacks?Â Their allegiance and sense of entitlement is intractable.Â Which is why I was moved by a comment at The Hill.Â Weighing in on a piece by A.B. Stoddard, an anonymous black person challenged his race.
Comment: by Black and Proud, March, 2011:
Obama’s liberal base is not enough to save him.Â Face it, the only group that has maintained loyalty is the black community.Â But I cannot understand how they can continue to support him merely because they share the same skin color.Â Obama has done nothing to help “his people.” Unemployment among young blacks is an abysmal 25%.Â He has done little to nothing to help them, in fact he has done more to hurt them.
For instance, by cutting the very successful DC voucher program that allowed disadvantaged black children the opportunity to go to some of the finest schools in DC.Â The black community needs to ask whyâ€”I’ll tell them.Â Because his loyalties lie with the teachersâ€™ unions.Â The unions donate tens of millions to his campaign, the poor black community does not.
This is a man that puts himself above all others.Â He’ll throw anyone under his bus for money, but blacks refuse to see it.Â They refuse to see how his breathtaking incompetence has negatively impacted the entire community and the way they are viewed by the world.
They think because Obama is black, he â€œunderstandsâ€ their plight.Â Nothing could be further from the truth.Â The man is an elitist who, I believe, is embarrassed by “his people.”Â He is no more like them than a horse is like a turtle.Â He only comes skulking around when he wants their votes, lying to them about how he is going to “lift them out of poverty.”Â One would think they would see it, but they don’t.
I would like nothing better than for the GOP to nominate a black candidate for President or Vice President.Â A competent black man or woman with a backbone who will do the Black community proud.
And for those of you who think Iâ€™m racist, think what you will.Â Just be advised, I am black, and unlike Obama, I come from slave blood.
It is time for the black community to see Obama and the entire Democrat party for what they are and what they want to continue to do to us.Â They want us right where we are, they do not want to see us rise out of poverty.Â Keeping us poor assures our continued support by keeping us dependent on the government for subsistence.Â We are better than that.
It is time for blacks to see Obama for what he isâ€”a FAILURE.
Truth, well stated, is a beautiful thing.
